"fox & friends" in for juliet huddy. the gum that used to come in the tops cards. remember how terrible that stuff was. >> once you get past the stale and hard rock like substance it turns into a flavorful. >> i agree it is delicious. >> more on that plus ugly christmas sweaters this
3:02am
morning. county guys from ugly christmas sweater party.com top. i think they can. i brought mine this morning. >> it's not only ugly it has the v neck. >> good point. >> extra level of ugliness. >> send us ugly christmas sweaters. >> we are also talking about as julia was commencing there the fiscal cliff now what washington the gridlock means i think it's most telling because what senator matt baucus from montana said we have 31 days left yet. we are not near a deal yet. we can't expect any sort of a deal with any weeks before christmas i would think. >> the big knock on the president through the this process has been a failure to lead. i think one that sticks rather well. because, instead of sitting down with john boehner. instead of trying to hash something out. he is out there again campaigning, gives speeches, instead of being the one that sits down and gets this deal
3:03am
down. here is the president on again what appears to be the campaign trail yesterday in pennsylvania. >> santa delivers everywhere, i have been keeping my own naughty and nice list for washington. >> [ laughter ] >> you should keep your eye hun gets some connects this year. some members of congress who get them and some who don't. i'm ready to sign it. there are no shortage of pens in the white house. and i carry one around for an emergency just in case. >> kin next is a toy. >> microsoft kinect? >> they make angry birds there, too. >> the question is thisent on te campaign trail a few weeks after everyone was exhausted from the election. now the obama side is having people send out tweets and emails and playing this populist sight. i would say it seems exhaustive. it works. it has been working for the president. throw this out there. do you think this makes a lot
3:04am
of sense? in polls that i was looking at they have republicans, folks feel if the fiscal cliff going to happen they would blame republicans 20% over this. >> there o. this may be true. if there is another recession he is going to be the president. it's his recession it will not be john boehner's name 10 years from now? or are they going to stick this on president obama. here is president obama about the lack of progress in d.c. >> it was not a serious proposal. right now we are almost nowhere. let's not kid ourselves. i'm not trying to make this more difficult. people who have watched me over the last three weeks i have been very guarded in what i have to say. i don't want to make it harder for me or the president or members of both parties to be able to find common ground. >> boehner also said that he felt because of the fact that it was timothy geithner who presented this, it wasn't
3:05am
serious. he said, you know, where is the president on this? >> the proposal to some is a joke. doubles down on what the offers were before. worse offer than what they offered republicans before by far. here is what the president is offering right now. not just the 800 billion in tax increases that had been mentioned but now let roughly double that to 1.6 trillion in tax increases. not to mention auto billion in new stimulus spending the cuts say are not even real and may not be realized. you see 400 billion nun specified medicare changes. will those ever happen? who knows? >> at the bottom of that list is a debt ceiling mark too. virtually unlimited ability for the government to borrow more money. we are not going to worry about the debt ceiling anymore. remember that debt ceiling debate we have every year. not going to have that debate anymore. kill any movement of the debt ceiling anymore so we can borrow indefinitely.
3:06am

3:10am
look, we can't fight. this we have just got to put the nativity scene away and not have to deal with defending ourselves in courts for the next 50,000 years. >> here is what brendan jones the principal who you said let's do. this in an attempt to be fair to everyone, decided not put the nativity scene out on campus. it was the school's principal. >> should they fight this in court? schools clearly don't have the money to do. so should they stand on principal or should they give in to these people who are making a war out of things that have been going on for decades there? >> whether you think there is a war or not. these people really have no other option. they are not going to be fighting this in the courts. it costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to do that. >> or get their funding pulled as a result of it? >> exactly. >> let us know what you think friends friends@foxnews.com. twitter on ff weekend. coming up on the show. gitmo detainees coming to america? some want to house them in u.s. prisons but should that

3:14am
>> welcome back, 14 minutes past the hour. gitmo detainees coming to america? new report commissioned by democratic senator dianne feinstein says there are several prisons inside the u.s. that could safely house detainees from guantanamo bay. >> so should this really be a viable option? joining us now is former department of justice
3:15am
official. good morning, sir. >> good morning. >> what is the biggest argument against this happening? >> these are not ordinary prisoners and they don't belong in ordinary prisons. i have sources who work at gitmo who tell me that the rates of attacks on soldiers on the guards is absolutely astronomical and it's also disgusting. these prisoners, some of them will grow their finger nails out and sharpen them into points and save their feces and dip them and attack guards when they come into their cells. these people are known to try to stab people's eyes out. these are violent, violent people that do not belong in the u.s. prison system. >> what happens if they are brought to the u.s. prison system. what are your main concerns? >> look at what happened with the uighurs? they were the chinese terrorists. the administration tried to release them into northern virginia before congressman frank wolf found out about it and said you can't do this. i think the long-term plan here is is to eventually
3:16am
integrate them into the regular prison population where they can radicalize the other prisoners and eventually these people, some in the administration want to just release them into in the united states. >> that being one of the biggest fears radicalizing others. here is what senator feinstein says about this. this report demonstrates if the political will exists we could finally close guantanamo without imperiling our national security. the gao report makes clear that numerous mifns exist holding the 166 detainees who maintain much in environment that meets the national security requirements. u.s. prisons already hold 373 prisoners convicted of terrorism. that's here in the united states. the political will is a whole another question she brings up. can this ever get through the house? >> it will never get through the house. don't forget, president obama this week promised to veto the
3:17am
entire defense authorization bill. that means everything, soldier pay, bomber fuel, tank maintenance, he promised to veto everything unless these prisoners are allowed to be brought into the united states. that's crazy priorities. this administration and this justice department, in particular, is on a crusade to implement this radical normalization of terror behavior by putting them into the civil justice system. it's because we have a justice department full of people who used to work for al qaeda terrorists and their lawyer is eric holder at the justice department. >> we will wrap it up on that note. we appreciate you being here this morning. >> thank you, juliet. >> we'll keep you up to date on this topic, obviously. >> remember that tennis ref busted for killing her husband. a surprising twist that could have her back in the umpire's chair. >> it's time to finally agree

3:22am
from 2010, from 1983 to 2010. the percentage of households worth less than 10 grand jumped over 37%. dave and clayton. >> thank you, juliet. president obama and republic leaders in congress have just 31 days to strike a deal before we fall off the fiscal cliff. but so far it's not looking like either side is willing to compromise. >> our next guest says there has been a failure in leadership to solve this crisis. joining us now is texas congressman louie gohmert. nice to see you. >> nice to see you. >> this is not necessarily against the president you have blasted g.o.p. leaders this week for a failure to lead basically saying we need to stand on our principles. they have a delegate -- delicate position to deal with. >> up until last week there had been a failure of leadership. the president out there finally pushing so far look we are going to forget the constitution. i'm going to basically pronounce law as i speak it
3:23am
congress hasn't done what i wanted, so we're just gonna ignore congress' constitutional right to appropriate. congress' constitutional right to set debt ceilings and we're going to ignore that that's what basically -- geithner basically announced. speaker boehner said look we can't allow that to happen. the fact is we can't. if we fail the constitution, it's going to be a lot worse than going over this ledge. we went off the fiscal cliff when the president got reelected so now we are just bouncing down further and further ledge to ledge. but the thing is for him to say we're going to increase spending let me give away more money, are you kidding? have you gotten more solyndras you haven't thrown away? enough is enough. the leverage we have is the debt ceiling. i'm hoping our leadership is going to bring that to bear. >> many feel the leverage the president has he says look i
3:24am
want to cut taxes or keep taxes where they are for those making $250,000 or less. i want middle class taxes to stay low. but the republics, they won't let that happen. he comes forward with a 1.6 trillion though in new taxes in this new deal. what do you think of that deal and where are you willing to compromise in terms of revenues? >> well, the president we had two years ago basically said and i'm not sure who this one is but the one a couple years ago said it would be insane to raise taxes during a recession. we are still in the recession. we are still 8% basically in on unemployment. so for us to raise taxes. >> where will you come pro-mize? >> oh, you want -- i want fair share from the president. he has not proposed anything that will have warren buffet pay what his sects does we do. it's called flat tax. have 15% capital gains where buffet is paying right now. have his secretary at 15%. if you make more, you pay
3:25am
more. a flat tax will do that. and steve forbes, arthur laugher a number of people are going to be pushing that this week. you will see. that's a fair share. that's what we ought to do. the compromise will be on what we cut. good grief, in the house we cut 11% over the last two years of our own budget. we should be demand and our leadership hasn't done it yet. 11% cut across the board throughout the government. this president is not even talking about it. he is talking about increasing spending. >> do you like the president's -- i'm curious your take on the president's populist argument right now. is he out there on the campaign trail again trying to sell this to the american people. >> that's what he does do. is he campaigner in chief. that's what he does well. >> isn't he looking at those polls showing that the republicans have been beaten down. the polls show if this happens most of the american people would blame the republicans. >> but he has been so abusive as of yesterday. so arrogant in what his demands are. you know, just virtually
3:26am
unlimited power. i think he has gone so far now that he he has even pushed our leadership in to standing firm. i tell you, you know, to do what's right for the american people, do what's right under the constitution, so what if you lose the next election. if we can save the country despite this president driving full speed over the cliff, then it would be worth it to save the country for future generations. i mean, what this guy is doing as president right now would monetarily is so immoral. you don't spend future generations' money because you can't stop spending you have got to keep borrowing. that's insane. it's time to make some realistic cuts and there are plenty to make. >> yes or no do we fall off the cliff. >> there will probably be a deal done at the last minute. i'm telling you it's okay -- it's -- there is really not a fiscal cliff. there is really not a fiscal cliff. the fiscal cliff like s&p tried to explain a year and a half ago is if you don't make cuts, we didn't make cuts,
3:27am
they downgraded us. that will be the fiscal cliff. >> perhaps another downgrade. >> yes. >> congressman, thank you for being here on the first day of december. have a great christmas if we don't get to see you. >> what if do you see me. >> then i will say it again and i will buy you coffee. >> great. i hope you do as well. thank you, merry christmas. >> coming up, one with nature. taking on a whole new meaning for this group of kayakers. tell you about their scary encounter out in the open sea. >> plus they just became millionaires but this midwest couple hoping the money will not change who they are. hear how they are going to spend their cash. are they going to get their own reality show? >> i hope so. or that printing in color had to cost a fortune. nobody said an all-in-one had to be bulky.

4:06am
benghazi isn't the only blemish on her record. maybe what happened on september 11st, actually reflects something that happened earlier on in her career. going back to 1998 when there were those terror bombings in kenya, and tanzania that killed more than 200 people. a dozen americans. some say susan rice failed to protect our embassies similar to what happened in 1998. >> exact same story repeated. they had the warnings. they had information that al qaeda had cells in these cities and they didn't do anything about it as far as increasing the security on these buildings and, once again, the same situation as what we saw back on september 11th. >> this came on the heels of the coal bombings. the family member was on hannity speaking about this going back to 1998. take a listen. >> what we do now is that as early as 1996, our intelligence community had live active cells al qaeda cells under surveillance in
4:07am
nairobi, kenya, and despite those facts, nothing was done to increase security at our embassies in nairobi or tanzania. and this problem has just compounded. we are seeing similarities with benghazi and we hope that whoever serves as secretary of state in our next congress will make security a top priority. >> this seems to be a recurring theme in her career and also susan collins asked susan rice this very same question in those hearings and susan rice wasn't prepared for the question about 1998 and said, you know, i'm going to have to go back and refresh my memory on this. i wasn't expecting a question on that. >> she wasn't. but would you ever forget the details of that? 200 people were killed. i'm sure that would always remain fresh in your mind. susan collins one of the more moderate senators not somebody who is a flame thrower from the right by any means. some say susan rice was a policy person in 1998.

it was not her job to do security detail and increase security. we may hash that out though if she gets the senate confirmation hearing. clearly that would come up. >> all righty. let's go to other evidence lines. we are fox news alert. new overnight info two south florida brothers busted in an alleged terror plot the men ages 20 and 30 had her first court appearances they were trying to provide money, lodging, communications and equipment and transportation in a conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction here in the u.s. they also say the younger brother has been in contact with radicals overseas possibly have connections to al qaeda. check out this video. new video this morning of a missing leukemia patient from arizona. phoenix police are desperately searching for this little girl. she is 11-year-old emily. her mother removed her iv and snuck her out of the hospital. doctors say she could die if she doesn't receive medical

4:16am
39,000. in oakland 33,000. but the reality is the reality is for years huge gap between what americans think when he hears poverty and east coast the old way that the government defined it when you see the mainstream media running a story on poverty saying they are 49 million poor people. they will feature a homeless family but only about 2% of the poor are homeless. in fact, the average poor american lives in a house or apartment that is larger than the average nonpoor french men, german or englishman. 80% of under the old definition had airconditioning. two thirds cable tv. half of them have a computer. a third of them have a wide screen hdtv. a quarter of them have a tivo. if you have them was anyone in your family hungry at any -- for even a single day during the last year? the overwhelming majority will say no. they have access to medical care. they have no hardship whatsoever.
4:17am
there is a complete disconnect between the way the government defines poverty and the way the american people think about it and the way the media presents it. >> why does this matter? when we shift this definition. how does this affect the average american? especially as we are having these fiscal cliff discussions in washington figuring out who is getting tax breaks cutting loopholes and so forth. >> the reality is we spend close to a trillion dollars on the year assistance to the poor, cash, food housing medical care that does not include social security and medicare. that's about $9,000 for each recipient. 100 million people receive this aid. it's a huge amount of spending. it's ridiculous to pretend that we can spend all that money and still have kids that don't have food to eat all over the country. this is really an advertising tool poverty measure and advertising tool for expanding the welfare state and spreading the wealth. by pretending that there is a massive amount of hardship

>> astronomical. based off the seasons where the sun angle is the amount of or heat or cold that is in our atmosphere is how we determine meteorological winter those start at the first of the month and goes until the end of february. >> is he one smart cookie. it's december so you can eat a lot of cookies, thanks, rick are. talk about this because it is christmas time and of course everyone is getting up their displays. have you put up the lights on scenes around your house? i got out the lights and started putting on the christmas tree. now there is, of course, the war at schools and whether or not they can actually put up certain themes and nativity theme down at cop ton dale in florida at the center of a controversy this year. >> so the problem is that they had a visit from the board of education. an official from the board of education who stopped by and said, you know, we were going to talk to you about separating church and state and all this business and ultimately the elementary school principal jones decided that quote in an attempt to be fair to everyone we decided that we would not put the nativity scene on campus. i understand her position

because she is not saying we don't want it there. she is saying, you know, there are people that are going to sue us. it's going to cost us a lot of money to fight it in court and we can't deal with it better off just put frosty the snowman. >> the question is this morning are you siding with the minority? are four or five overruling the thousands that want the nativity scene to romaine as a sign of what christmas is all about. do atheists in this case have more constitutional rights than those people who celebrate the symbol of christmas? we see the judges ruling on the side of the eighthists. we atheists. a lot of people emailed us. sally said i think this country is losing the right of religion. i'm jewish and see nothing wrong with all christmas

>> welcome back, everybody. student loan debt is nearing $1 trillion. after the first time ever the number of delinquent student loans have surpassed even credit card, auto and home equity loans. >> that's crazy. has the federal lending program made it too easy for college students to borrow and are the alternatives to student loans? are they out there? joining us is rachel cruise financial speaker and writer for the dave ramsey organization. good to have you this morning. >> good to -- thanks for having me. >> all righty. so these federal lending programs are designed to make college education more affordable. basically what's happening is creating a pile of debt. >> that's right. so many students are believing the lie that you can't be a student without a student loan. so they are just assuming student loans are are the only way to go to college. >> seems obvious what the down sides would be but let's put them up on the screen how are
4:48am
people winding up with so much debt? are there things they don't realize going into it. >> i think so. an 18-year-old doesn't con piewt that they may graduate with $27,000 in debt. that's just. >> or more. >> that's just the average. >> and more. the average is coming out to $27,000. i don't think an 18-year-old really realizes how much money that actually is. which brings us to point 2. i feel like if i talk to the 21-year-old version of them they always say i wish i had known this before i went to college. and so i always tell high school seniors you guys have you have got to look at the alternatives. >> let's talk about some of the alternatives. what do you suggest? there are a lot of people out there who get scholarships. it sort of comes easy for them. maybe people need to focus on getting those scholarships and less on going right to the borrowing root. >> exactly, he yes. i tell high school seniors and even students in college apply for as many scholarships as possible. something makes you eligible
4:49am
for a scholarship. that may mean you know you have to write an essay or fill out a form but do. that will do the work because scholarships are free money. >> also you talk about not necessarily going to the school that sounds the best that's going to cost in excess of even 50 grand a year. a community college may be your best option, an in-state school. i'm curious as to in your thoughts why so many are delinquent today is that because of the recession? is that because jobs aren't paying what they used to or are students just not doing their homework? we talked about this stat earlier it exceeds even delinquent credit card payments. >> yeah. absolutely. you know, i think debt has become so normal in america today and so many students see this high ticket priced item which college ahead of them and they get overwhelmed. that's why i try to break it down for them and if the average college student worked 20 hours a week they could pay their way through an in-state school. they don't hear that they hear i need to go to the fancy college i tell them no stay
4:50am
in-state take that ino-state tuition and go to community legion for first year or two. it's possible to go to college without a student loan. >> rachel cruise thanks so much. more questions for her find her on twitter cruze. thanks for coming on. >> thanks, rachel. >> thanks so much. >> naughty or nice list. parents don't seem to take that into consideration when it comes to christmas. is this sending the wrong message to our kids? dr. keith ablow is coming in. ♪ [ male announcer ] it's that time of year again. medicare open enrollment. time to compare plans and costs. you don't have to make changes. but it never hurts to see if you can find better coverage, save money, or both. and check out the preventive benefits you get

hole. >> this happened to answered of from ours in oregon. walked out in the morning the father was going out to get a newspaper in the morning he he went out and the newspaper wasn't there but there was a giant hole in his front yard instead and they had to move. >> lake front property. >> had to move as a result. >> rick reichmuth in with a check of the weather. it is winter in a matter of speaking, rick. >> most of the country feeling incredibly warm except for out across the west it is still warm just very very wet it's been so warm that all of the elevation -- higher elevation precipitation falling as rain and not as snow. you would like it to be snow but mostly rain. a little bit of break today. lighter rain but the next storm moves in tomorrow. have a series of storms that have been here. but we have two more to get through. one that is going to be pulling in tonight and tomorrow. another one tuesday into wednesday. after that this pattern changes. steady stream of moisture that you see right here coming out of the tropics. heading straight in towards northern california. it is also some of that moisture going in across the pacific northwest. some of it making its way in
5:05am
towards parts of the northern rockies where it is falling more as snow. anywhere kind of to the east of the rockies is just incredibly warm. take a look next through days omaha 60 degrees next three days pushing 73 in st. louis for monday, kansas city pushing 70. so the heat is there. it's also warm a little farther down towards the south. typically temps should be in the low 60's here. talking 80 degrees in dallas today. guys? >> thanks so much, rick. >> thanks, rick. let's bring in fox news host and author of the brand new book perfect gift for the holidays out second week in the "new york times" best seller list. called deer chandler, deer scarlet. governor mike huckabee is joining us this morning. >> hi, gov. >> you are in dayton, ohio, the home of the first four. >> yeah, indeed. >> in the ncaa tournament game. >> and former home. i used to live in dayton, ohio. hello miamisburg. nice to see you, governor, welcome. >> nice to see you. good morning from dayton, ohio today. >> the president out hematocritting the campaign trail again it seems like
5:06am
yesterday in hatfield, pennsylvania. i'm surprised maybe he will show up in ohio soon to do another round sort of campaign style speeches. on this fiscal cliff issue. they put forward their proposal which has about $1.6 trillion in additional taxes, about $50 billion in stimulus spending, of course, here are. so numbers on your screen. met with laughter by michigan mcconnell senate minority leader said i didn't take this seriously. what was your take on this? >> i think mcconnell is right. this is not a serious proposal. the republics intimated that they might be willing to put some revenue on the table. and that's when the democrats basically said okay, then we want everything. it's not unlike the used car sales men or even the new car sales men who says i think we have got a deal. let me take the sales manager. then he comes back and says after we add the undercoating and that special paint and a dealer prep package, then it's going to cost you. this look, there is an old line that every person understands, when the teenage
5:07am
boy says if you just let me kiss you, that's all i want and that's the game the democrats are playing. look,. >> now you are speaking my language. >> i knew that clayton you and dave would totally understand this. >> right. >> but the point is the republics are not going to fall for this and she shouldn't and they couldn't. and it's unfortunate that the president who ought to be sitting in a room with these leaders of congress hammering out the details is instead out trying to negotiate on the front page of the "the washington post." you cannot do that. i was a governor for a long time and when you are dealing with legislation, you have got to get off the front pages of the paper. have you got to tone down the rhetoric and you have got to sit down face to face with people and build relationships and that is leadership. and that's what this president has absolutely gone off the cliff himself. >> i have to agree with you there stop the speeches and start the face-to-face discussions with john boehner. >> bill kristol at the "weekly standard" and many others say the president has the upper
5:08am
hand here because he is out there saying i want tax cuts for the middle class. he has in fact said the republicans are holding middle class tax cuts hostage. does he have the upper hand and how do republicans play that? >> republics have to remind people that what he really wants is more spending. and that the taxes that he wants to hit the rich with are not going to go to pay down the deficit. they are not going to help them. they are going to lay off 700,000 of them who won't have jobs. and the republics need to simplify the message to simply say if you think the government isn't spending enough money, then support the president. if you think that what we really need to do is stop spending away our grandchildren's future, then you better just tell the president it's time to sit down, come home to washington, stop the speeches, stop the campaigning and get serious about being president of the united states. >> governor, we are talking this morning about a school down in florida. one of probably many schools around the country that have taken down their nativity scenes. they are replacing it with a little frosty the snowman.
5:09am
board of education guy you are going to have problems with the church and the state the school said we don't want to have any sort of lawsuits and deal with that we will take this stuff away. rhode island, the christmas confusion there. the governor there has a problem with calling it a christmas tree. it's a holiday tree now. he didn't even have the lighting ceremony announce that there was going to be a lighting ceremony until 30 minutes before the ceremony actually happened because last year there was all sorts of protesting going on. so what's your feeling about this? what is this saying about how we are right now as a culture with regard to the holidays and christmas? >> the word christmas means something. christmas. the worship of christ. people with not necessarily have to feel obligated to have a religious experience when it comes to christmas. but the history of christmas is irrefutable. i don't know how we can can be true and authentic to the nature of holiday and somehow deny that it really exists. that is what is illogical
5:10am
here. i think it's perfectly okay to observe that there are certain holidays in our culture that may have religious significance to some people, may not to others. but you can't deny what they are. and that's what i see happening when you try to put frosty the snowman, you know, in the cresh. you call everything a holiday and refuse to call it christmas. if you are that secular don't take the day off. clock in as usual and don't pretend to have gifts and presents because all of that had significance in the gift-giving to the baby jesus. so either we're gonna be true to the history of the holiday or we're gonna be people living in denial. i think that's just absurd and we have gone to the point of political correctness in a ridiculous way. >> i learned a new word this morning. >> you had clayton ask historyicity.
5:11am
perfect word myth. what a great word to use there. judge's decision on different things. florida's decision. one-eighthist had a school or someone comes in and makes one, you know, ruffles dirt a little bit and everyone's scene has to be taken down. have to take down the menorah and these types of things. do you feel like the judges in these situations are siding with the minority here? >> well, they certainly are but i think the best way to combat it is that if every person who is a believer would go out and do something remarkably wonderful and do it in the name of christ during the christmas season, give money to a homeless person, and whatever you do say i just want to do this because this is what christmas is to me, i think the goodness could overwhelm the absurdity and cynicism that a lot of people express today. >> we are going to take a break and continue with the governor in just a second after we get back including the war on women -- i mean war
5:12am
on men. >> war on men, that's right. also they spent $10, got five lotto tickets and have 136 million reasons to celebrate. why are america's newest multimillionaires buying toothpaste? this family's unbelievable story still ahead. sometimes what we suffer from
5:13am
is bigger than we think ... like the flu. with aches, fever and chills- the flu's a really big deal. so why treat it like it's a little cold? there's something that works differently than over-the-counter remedies. prescription tamiflu attacks the flu virus at its source. so don't wait. call your doctor right away. tamiflu is prescription medicine for treating the flu in adults and children one year and older whose flu symptoms started within the last two days. before taking tamiflu tell your doctor if you're pregnant, nursing. have serious health conditions, or take other medicines. if you develop an allergic reaction, a severe rash, or signs of unusual behavior, stop taking tamiflu and call your doctor immediately.
5:14am
children and adolescents in particular may be at an increased risk of seizures, confusion or abnormal behavior. the most common side effects are mild to moderate nausea and vomiting. the flu comes on fast, so ask your doctor about tamiflu. prescription for flu.
5:15am
early this week on "fox & friends," author suzanne vinker said the changing roles of women may to be blame. >> what you have today are
5:16am
women who are specifically trying to do it the opposite way that women used to go to college to find a husband. flipped that which is absolutely fine but the problem is the focus is so -- has shifted so greatly that there is no thought to marriage and motherhood and how that is going to fit in around this other core focus. what's happening to a lot of people is the attitude towards marriage is one that's something that is going to keep you from becoming something. you don't have to be in charge. it's okay to depend on a guy and be your prince charming, that's not bad things. that's gotten lost in this whole female empowerment hear me roar. >> what does governor huckabee think about this? he is an expert in women and men. what do you think about this? is there a war on men? >> i don't know if it's a war on men we come a a place a
5:17am
difference. the fact is god made men different from women. i didn't even have to take high school biology to know he that. and the difference is important. and the differences are what attracts people. to each, and the idea that equality means -- equality value is not the same as sameness which means that we are exactly alike. and that's what i do believe in our politically correct culture we are missing. there is a wonderful difference between how men think and how women think. men will never yumed stand women. women will never understand men. we spent our life times. >> ain't that the truth. >> it is the truth, juliet. that's the whole point of what makes life interesting. and i don't want the sameness. i want that difference. and i have been married 38 years. i still haven't figured it out. >> can i just jump in here as the lone female here? i do have to say that
5:18am
chivalry. gentlemenly behavior seems to have gone out the door. i basically know one guy who consistently when i sit down. >> in part. >> that's not true. you don't get it? >> there is something too that. >> i am telling you right now. >> is there something to that that maybe there is a double standard. >> it's unfortunate that chivalry has died. i was raised a southern boy where, you know, even if you walked a lady, you walked on the street side and the lady walked on the inside. you opened doors, and, you know, there are times you do that and somebody looks at you like i'm not helpless. it's not about you're helpless, i value you. i elevate you. it's not about being stronger or you being weaker. it's about you being special and unique or someone who ought to be honored and real attitude that men ought to have toward women is that. >> dana perino is hosting your show tonight. that is how you are elevating the lady tonight any advice
5:19am
for dana who is coming up on our show? any advice for hosting your show. >> don't do it very well because i don't want to lose the opportunity to do it next week. [ laughter ] >> that's great advice. >> do it well but don't overdo it dana, straight play it straight. but i value you. >> governor, we value you. >> thank you. >> thank you so much for joining us this morning and we will see you next weekend. >> great to be with you. >> all right. see you then. >> all right. go juliet. >> thanks. >> ladies first. >> security fear as possible plan to bring gitmo detainees to america. why one military mom says it's a slap to face son and brave soldiers. >> hands off unless you are 19 or older. some lawmakers want to put a drinking age on energy drinks. is the government going too far? hands off my red bull. why is it that the most impressive technology

6:09am
nativity out on campus and to be fair-- >> and they put frosty the snowman out. >> and the principal didn't say anything about not liking the nativity scene, she just said that she felt pressured by the board of education officials who stopped by and basically talked about the issue that seemed to come up and the principal is just worried about having to take the situation to court and having to, you know, spend all sorts of money in a lawsuit. just to avoid that, you know, we're just going to back off and we're going to make it, now, non-nonreligious. >> clayton: we asked governor huckabee the question earlier on the show, whether this is a sort of constitutional issue and whether or not in court, atheists, one individual who raises a stink and ends up the legal battles on the side of the minority. he says, yes, it repeatedly happens when everyone else was fine with it. >> dave: and the atheists may

taxes on the rich while john boehner, the speaker of the house opens negotiating. >> it's not acceptable to me and i don't think it's acceptable to you, for a handful of republicans in congress to hold middle class tax cuts hostage simply because they don't want the tax rates on upper income folks to go up. all right? that, that doesn't make sense. >> increasing tax rates draws money away from our economy that needs to be invested in our economy that needs to put the american people back to work. it's the wrong approach. and we're willing to put revenues on the table, but revenues that come from closing loopholes, getting rid of special interest deductions and not raising rates. >> clayton: so with all of that, the white house saying they're unwilling to compromise on tax likes for the wealthy, where do we go from here. >> juliet: let's ask dana perino, currently on "the five" fox news channel.
6:15am
>> how are you. >> a great so-so far, lots of calories on that table out there. >> dave: speaking of ugly, how was the offer from the white house new taxes and 50 billion in new stimulus spending. . >> it's a classic bait and switch by the president. and people in congress from both sides of the aisle they don't like that kind of thing and john boehner had said back in february of 2012, let's try get in done, mr. president, before the election gets too intense, because it's going to be bad for the economy to have this uncertainty and the president said, yes, thank you very much i'm going to go ahead and they didn't do anything until now. and then for a few days we talked about the republicans, they're in disarray and finally got the message, like, wait a second, president doesn't have a plan? they didn't have anything ready to go and they come tooting with something so laughable. the president says it's
6:16am
unacceptable for a handful of people to stop the policy, but if you get the same revenue from wealthier people reducing deductions and not going with rates, why wouldn't you take that deal, mr. president. >> clayton: and the president and white house talking, we won reelection on the message and talking to individuals about and therefore they see the polls and 60% of americans agree with our plan here and that's why the president is out here doing the speeches. and you know, love it or hate it-- from the political pr standpoint, the president is best at doing one thing, and that is campaigning and going around and if you listen to some of the messages, you have to realize that if he were back home in washington, and able to sit down and they would be able to get to some sort of a deal, but mitch mcconnell shall the senate minority leader, this is a man who is very steady, okay? he does not show emotion one way or another, when timothy geithner, the treasury secretary comes to give the president's plan, mitch mcconnell laughed out loud because here is the the thing, what everybody was told during
6:17am
the campaign is that we had to look at some hard truths and deal with the government spending. and most people in america, want the government to spend less to get their physical-- get everything under control. in addition to asking for not just the tax rate, they want the stimulus bill, like another stimulus to do what? and worked so well the last time? don't think so. the third thing the president asked for distasteful, unlimited power for him to be able to raise the debt limit whenever he wants and i think that's why mcconnell laughed and bait and switch. and at the beginning of the week i thought they would get a deal. i'm not so sure. >> juliet: we're going over the fiscal cliff? >> i don't know, 31 days, plenty of time. and for as many decembers as i can remember. >> clayton: you're hosting the huckabee show, and earlier

6:25am
combat, infantry position and that's where i feel it's inappropriate because the requirements for them to get into the infantry are very, very extreme and men that do not pick that field to go into and are put in, based upon the requirements of joining the military. so if the women are getting into the field, all women must be capable of performing the function as the men are when they enlist into the military. and capability to get in. and women right now do not have the same standards as men to even enlist in the military. >> martha? >> well, again, women are on the front lines, women are in combat right now in case anybody didn't get the memo. i mean, they are killing the bad guys, they are giving their lives for their country, they're coming back wounded and coming back from ptsd. they're in combat and talking about a 18-year-old policy that's very outdated that restricts women from being in any positions associated with a ground combat unit and
6:26am
that's defined by being well forward on the battlefield. it's outdated, irrelevant and a pentagon policy that quite frankly they're maneuvering women around and attaching them to units instead of assigning them to units and in order to, you know, agree with the letter of the law, but actually allow women to actually be out in combat because they have been very important on the battlefield as we've seen in iraq and afghanistan. and so, the issue here is about setting standards for positions, making sure we have the best man for the job even if it's a woman and whatever the standards are, includes physical strength and aptitude, intellect, courage, leadership, all of those things are current soldiers, sailors, airmen and marine in many positions and you set the standard and you recruit from the highest number of people, 100% of your population. >> and you make them uniform across the board. >> and it's u.s. versus virginia 96. they say keeping women out on

6:28am
that want equality in the military have to understand several things, in the field they are placed in right now, they are treated equally. they are given the adequate opportunity to get promoted in the field of their choice they're in, but the infantry itself is a ground pounder. this is equivalent to the nfl with 120 pound back on your back and getting hit by a linebacker day after day. >> dave: the physical requirements are brutal. one last word from martha quick. some say it would upset the chemistry, if you will, of a unit. are you at all concerned about that? >> yeah, let's just say, you know, this is over 200,000 positions that women are currently restricted from, it's not just infantry, this is special operations helicopters, i mean, this is in a tank, this is artillery fields, this is a broad number of positions they're restricted from and we've shown in many studies in the real world that cohesion comes from doing a mission and nothing to do with gender so the bottom line is set the

6:47am
basically have less eyeballs, you have less people on the market. and most people are busy, shopping, travelling, focused on other things and also, that psychological aspect of, i'll start my diet in the new year, well, i'll start house shopping in the new year, so, really, you need to capture the buyers that are out there and the way to do it first is rehe evaluate your price. and you need to look at what the comps are today, from 30 days to go, and 60 days to go, but no longer. because if you're going to make a price change and want to try to get something into escrow before the end of the year, let's do that price change now. >> and the next tip you have is a great tip and people need to almost stage their home. do not overdecorate. get rid of furniture, make it look as sparse as possible, but nice, right? >> absolutely. first with the decorating, you really don't want to overdecorate and people looking to buy a house are looking to move in in january and show them what the house looks like then. you don't want to go crazy and you don't want to have an eight foot blowup santa on the

6:49am
and loved the way it was decorated and we could see our son in that room. kind of goes both ways, right? >> it's really about clearing out stuff. you want to get rid of the porcelain pig collection you've got scattered through the living room, and also, you know, in your kids' rooms get rid of the trophies or any personal items because you really, again, want buyers to see themselves in your house, they don't want to see you. they want to see themselves. so, declutter. depersonalize, clear it out. i can promise you, every home seller right now has about 50% too much stuff in their house. >> check out michael corbitt's book at any bookstore or amazon.com and great writer and tips for the housing market and great to see you this morning, michael, we appreciate it. >> thanks, my pleasure. >> and surprising that you knew so much about my porcelain pig collection, a little shocked there.
